Frequently Asked Questions About the Starfish Fund

The Beaches Episcopal School Starfish Fund Annual Giving Campaign officially began on October 1st and will run through December 31, 2016. You can return the pledge card mailed to every family, or if you prefer, you may also donate online.

This year's Starfish Fund will be used responsibly for...

  • professional development
  • technology upgrades
  • classroom supplies
  • enhanced curriculum
  • facility improvements

For those who are new to BES or if you need a refresher, we have put together some "Frequently Asked Questions" about the Starfish Fund that will help you as you consider your gift to this year's annual giving campaign.

Our goal this year is $65,000 and 100% participation from our families. We have already recieved 100% participation from our Board of Trustees, Vestry, Faculty and Staff.  To “sweeten” the incentive, Martha Milton has agreed to take each homebase class who reaches 100% parent participation during the campaign to Sweet Frog for an ice cream party!

1952 Founders Society:

This year, Beaches Episcopal School has established the 1952 Founders Society in honor of the founding date of our school.  All families and individuals who pledge or give $1,952 and beyond will be invited to a reception in thanksgiving for their support as well as two tickets to our Parent Social held on Friday, February 24, 2017 at The Atlantic Beach Country Club.

We thank you in advance for support and if you have any questions please email Stacy Nash, Director of Development, or call her at (904) 246-2466 ext 112.
